The wait is over. Following are the videos of each BlogHer '09 general session. You'll laugh; you'll cry; you'll think; you'll see your favorite blogger read their most amazing blog post; you'll see Tina Brown ask you to give her your business card; you'll see Ezter Hargittai and danah boyd obliterate our assumptions about today's teens and tweens.
It's Day Three post-BlogHer '09, and we are in our full-on, annual Listen-Real-Hard mode here at BlogHer. Since Lisa Stone, Jory Des Jardins and I first plunked down our credit cards to reserve a space for the BlogHer 2005, we have asked for everyone's help to make it happen. To make it better. To make it a celebration of women who blog.
I've attended four of the five BlogHer conferences. I stayed home for the first one and was just about as jealous and miserable as a woman blogger can be.
I've spoken at two BlogHer conferences.
I've officially live-blogged four BlogHer conferences.
I've been drunk at BlogHer Con (which is frightening since I don't drink.)
I've cried at BlogHer Con.
I've gotten angry at BlogHer Con.
I've been the life of the party.
I've been the blogger hiding in a corner because she just can't handle the people.
My heart has hurt over the sessions I wasn't able to attend.
You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll laugh and cry. How can you not? It's the return of the BlogHer Community Keynote!
This year, 21 bloggers from our community read their own work, curated by the marvelous Eden Kennedy of Fussy, Let's Panic about Motherhood, and NaBloPoMo.

BlogHer '09, BlogHer's fifth annual conference, will be our biggest conference yet. Every year we have sold out and dealt with the dreaded waiting list. This year we sold out BlogHer '09's original capacity in mid-March, which left us with lots of community members wanting in.
Today, we are thrilled to announce the final selections for the BlogHer '09 Community Keynote, our second annual Community Keynote, taking place on Friday July 24th.
Just like last year, we received hundreds of submissions, and I have to start with a shout-out of gratitude to our tremendous Community Keynote grand poobah:
Eden Kennedy from Fussy
And the rest of the Community Keynote committee:
Jes Ferris and Lori Luna from BlogHer
Under two weeks ago, we announced BlogHer Food '09, our first foray into a food blogging event, and our second topic-focused event, after BlogHer Business. We have two announcements about BlogHer Food today:
